Bush's America; DFW

Sitting near me, here in this wireless hotspot, are a number of US soldiers. Occasionally an American (civilian) approaches them and thanks them for their service and expresses how happy they are that they made it back safely — they graciously accept, and then say “…but I have to go back in two weeks.” It's heartbreaking. These are people with lives in the United States, with families and friends who love them and that they love in return. I'm not sure that being allowed on the plane first makes up for it.

Back in America, the polls are now swinging to Bush as fear drives the election.
As you go vote, repeat after me;

"I must not fear. Fear is the mindkiller. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn to see fear's path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Fear will not carry you through the darkness. It keeps you there.

You need to think about Bush's America. Is your life better than it was four years ago? The lives of your friends? Does a $200 take rebate make up for a $9000 drop in salary? Does adding hundreds of thousands of government jobs make up for decimation of jobs in the private sector. Don't be fooled — if you look through the small window, you may see a gross gain, but look at the big picture, and it's all net losses. Losses socially, losses economically, losses of security. Everything.

I was watching DeutscheWorld, and they were interviewing a European economist who was talking about how “good” it would be for Europe if Bush was re-elected. That said, you could tell he felt a little dirty saying that, because his thesis was based on the fact that Bush is doing such damage to the US economy and US holdings abroad that the Euro will continue to become the dominant currency internationally. Americans — if your dollar becomes internationally devalued, this will deeply affect you and your quality of life. Debt control is power, and is a large part of how America has ruled much of the world for the past seventy-five years. Being on the subservient side of international debt robs a country of its liberty, in exactly the same way that high credit card debt does it to an individual.

This is Bush's America. 2,000 arrests at the RNC. LiveJournalers being interrogated by the Secret Service for criticising Bush in their online diaries. Cutting of funding to groups who encourage condom use. Banning of abortions as the new Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade (it blows my mind that a woman would vote for Bush). Banning of BME and adult media and other “unapproved” forms of art. An economic draft as your taxes pay for high-end mercenaries and electronic weaponry to fight wars around the world, finally ended by a barrage of nuclear strikes around the world and in America.

Watch the above Eminem video. Realize this — the polls show that young people and minorities are at least polling in huge numbers for Kerry. I don't know what will happen if Bush is re-elected, but I think it's safe to say that there could be a period of social unrest in America that could easily be as dangerous as any Arab terrorist. You can't treat Americans like this and not have them eventually freak out.

Finally, I'd like to publicly repost The World According To Bush. I will be deleting this file from my servers after the election, so watch it before that! This documentary was on the Canadian news a few weeks ago. It is a damning documentary about the Bush family's corruption and alliances with evil.


The film is an hour and twenty minutes long, so I've captured it in two qualities; both are watchable but if you have the bandwidth I recommend the larger of the two files. They are both WMV files.

Pass it on to friends that need to see it To be clear, while this is a French documentary, it is overdubbed in English. It's interesting to note by the way which US diplomats are fluent in French (and thus dubbed), and which are speaking in English.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
